Dependent page layouts - data rules to show, hide, or make fields/sections req'd

Salesforce Platform, Customization, Large Enterprise Ideas, Application Framework, Large Enterprise

There are times when it would be ideal to show different fields or sections on a page based on field data. For example, if a field for "software interest" is selected on a lead page, it would be nice if a section and/or fields related to capturing more information on "Software" is displayed. If the field is not selected, then this section and/or fields remain hidden. Allowing greater customization on the page level based on data rules would make for more manageable and targeted page layouts.
